Where children do make great bonds when joining Cheer, their whole families can also find a sense of community. Parents often find they have found their best friends through watching their kids perform, travelling, and events!
Learning to set goals is an important part of development and cheerleaders learn to thrive on challenge and opportunity! Each year, our teams are tasked with new routines, tumbling, harder stunts, and leaving it all on the mat!
As a cheerleader, you spend the majority of your time around people who encourage and support you. Knowing that you have the ability to practice, learn, and master new skills is a major confidence builder.
Cheerleaders end up being more like brothers and sister than friends. Between training, competing, events, and fundraising, they learn to be something part of bigger than cheer.
GET FIT AND STRONG
If you are a cheerleader or want to be one, you know that behind those awesome skills is a lot of strength and training. Building muscle and endurance will help in tumbling, stunting and pyramids.
Get back up after you fall! Mental strength is not only important for cheerleading but for life in general. Learn what it means to lose it and what it takes to win it back!
Don’t let anyone tell you that cheerleaders are not athletes! Over the years, cheerleading has developed into one of most complex sports out there and it only continues to evolve and push its competitors to new heights each year. Cheerleading is now one of the fastest-growing sports in the world and was recently announced as a provisional sport in the upcoming Olympics!
Regardless of whether you are trying cheerleading for the first time, or have the skills of a level five athlete and are ready to take on WORLDS, we have a team for you! All of our teams are competitive within their respective divisions and as a result, we are considered one of the premier cheer and tumbling programs located British Columbia.
It was amazing seeing the kids compete in Dallas! I have never been more proud of my daughter and the coaches at Gems Athletics!
I love everything about this gym. The coaches are hands-on and encouraging, and my girls are so excited to go every time. They have both picked up a lot of skills really quickly and are so happy with their progress. I would recommend Gems Athletics to anyone who wants their child to learn and exercise in a fun and encouraging environment.
Our Family has been part of Gems Athletics since it’s opening in year one! Our 3 daughters are currently in cheer from levels Tiny through to Open 5, and our son is in Parkour. We are extremely happy with the coaching they receive and the culture they are immersed in. We’ve found it to be a positive and empowering environment for our children to be in.
Gems Athletics is not just a cheer gym, it’s a cheer family! Both my daughters have trained there for almost five years and my son has attended parkour there. I highly recommend the coaches and programs at Gems Athletics!
Finding Gems Athletics was a blessing. My daughter could never seem to find her 'thing' and trust me we tried EVERYTHING! She decided to try cheerleading and it has been such a godsend in her life. The owners, the amazing coaches, the friendships and the lifelong bonds that are created are like nothing else. She has been cheering now for 6 years and not only is she such a strong athlete but it has created the most amazing memories and experiences for her. Gems Athletics is not just a cheerleading and parkour studio, it truly is a community and our second family.
My daughter has been attending Gems Athletics for almost two years. The owners and the coaches are amazing. They don’t just coach the girls, they care so much about them. My daughter has come such a long way in her skills and confidence since joining Gems Athletics. I love being a part of the Gems Athletics family.
